VIDEO: February 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit, Alternate Projects & Giveaway


Loved playing with the February “Many Happy Birthdays” Paper Pumpkin kit. I made a set of alternate projects from it, including an adorable Easter Card, Thank You and Birthday Candle card. My “how to” video is below, as well as a new giveaway. Download the free pdf for measurements and supplies.



We turned creative control of our April kit over to CEO, Sara Douglass, and the end result is stunning! Her style is, “bold, vibrant, and artistic—with a little bit of sass,” which is exactly how she described the kit. Sara designed this kit for you and your customers, so you can discover creativity through the eyes of our CEO while having an experience that is uniquely YOU! Tell your customers to get ready to embrace their inner artist and skip to the fun with Sara.

As if a kit designed by Sara is not reason enough to sign up, there’s more! She’s including a FREE gift inside every April box! We’re keeping it a surprise, but your customers won’t want to miss it.

Deadline: April 10
